Print and GO packets!

I am almost positive this happens to you. Why? Possibly because it happens to me at least every week. I get busy, I forget to print something, or my lesson just isn't working for this group, or maybe the kids just want to read a certain book that we haven't gotten to yet. Either way, it happens and a good therapist ebbs and flows with her groups - right??? Right! Also, here's this scenario - you've been writing IEPs for what feels like 100 years and all of a sudden you have a group. BAM, print and go!
I'm creating these all inclusive packets because I think they're necessary. 10 pages worth of take home sheets, activity pages, and story questions. It's an all-in-one, who doesn't love that?? I have a printer in my classroom that only prints using black ink, so anything that is black and white and the kids can color is also a plus. I like hitting print and having a lesson, homework, and classwork all spit out. It's also nice that I won't run through $40 worth of ink printing it, like I do with many of my other lessons...guilty, so guilty...

ANYWHO, with my kinderoos we're reading "We're Going On A Leaf Hunt" by Steve Metzger. It's a simple book that targets a lot of concepts that my kindergarteners need to work on! I created this packet to help with prepositions, WH questions, and sequencing. It's a pull, print, and play, if you will. Pull the  book, print the sheets, play the speech session. Sometimes I even hit print while the students are checking homework so the kids can "catch" our work from the printer - always a hit, always. LOL

Winter Adapted Book FREEBIE!

With the crazy weather here in NY (see house pic nightmare of snow!) I wanted to share my adapted free book for winter clothing! This will be one of those short, late-night posts, so I apologize! I wanted to make sure this one got out to you guys!

I created this for use with an AAC device, but it really can be utilized for so much more! I've also used this activity to target vocabulary with an ESL student, following directions with a student targeting auditory comprehension, and as an introduction to the topic of winter!

The options are endless! Plus, I wanted to make this a freebie since I know I have been using tons of awesome freebies on TpT from fellow bloggers - gotta give back!

Halloween Following Directions Print-N-Go Packet

Just a quick check-in before I wander off into Sunday chili and sweatpants! I wanted to share this following directions packet I've been using for the month of October. I have a lot of kinders this year who came in with following directions goals. I've been trying to target them each session with fun, coloring crafts each time so they can see their work.
This packet is four pages, black and white, and FREE! It includes following 1 and 2 step directions, following varied directions, and following conditional directions. All the sheets are halloween themed and of course black and white for low-ink usage! Check out this scarily fun packet HERE on TpT! 

FREE Parent Handout for "Self-Talk" and "Parallel Talk"!

This summer I pledged that I would work with more of the little little guys in my private practice - early intervention and preschool age. I love this age group and really missed working with them (currently I see preK through second grade in a school setting). Working in a home-based environment is incredible because of all of the great parent-training we get to do. I love being able to explain and show exactly what I'm doing and the strategies I'm using.

As all SLPs know, with this age group we are doing a lot of self and parallel talk. Sometimes I leave my half-hour sessions out of breath! Of course, talking is never an issue for an SLP!! I find that my parents are talking to their child, however their language needs to be modified, or they need to present things differently (i.e., giving options to elicit more language vs. yes/no questions).

I created this parent handout to familiarize my parents with what I'm doing and to emphasize effective carryover. I like to say …
